Bought new by me in September 2004 from John Packer & Co but little played since. Lacquer finish. Regularly serviced and last done today. Valves fast and tight as new, all slides move easily. Lacquer 99.5% complete with only two areas size of pinheads missing from underside of the leadpipe. Complete with Bach 7C mouthpiece and original case. Case has only had two weeks use as the Strad has been kept in a Bonna triple case ever since. Outstanding overall condition. Price new is a shade under £2000. I'm looking for £1050. Any trial welcomed if you are prepared to travel to Bolton.
